Inscription.  
The Veterans of
the Korean War

“They went, not for conquest, and not
for gain, but only to protect
the anguished and the innocent.

They suffered greatly and by their
heroism in a thousand battles, they
added a luster to the codes that
we hold most dear;

Duty, Honor, Fidelity,
Bravery, Integrity
"
